DGNB criteria "Land use" (ENV2.3)

Objective

Our objective is to reduce the excess use of land for building purposes and limit soil sealing in undeveloped areas.

Benefits

Using land and soil sparingly and in a way that minimises the impact on this land and soil is necessary not just from an ecological standpoint; against a backdrop of increasing infrastructure costs, financial aspects must also be considered. Sparingly use of land that minimises the impact on this land at local level, results in lower development, waste water charges and an improved microclimate.
